Busy The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes isn't keen on performing with her old band again
After S Club 7 announced their reunion tour, following their performance on Children In Need last year, many fans were hoping that S Club Juniors might be the next to get back together.
Despite having stayed in touch with her bandmates, Rochelle doesn’t fancy performing with them again.
‘Look, I’m friends with the Juniors and all of that, and it will always be a big part of my life,’ says Rochelle, 25. ‘But I don’t want to go back to being 12 again.’
Rochelle and her fellow Saturday, Frankie Bridge, were just kids when they were members of S Club Juniors. The group were formed in 2001 and had several big hits including One Step Closer, New Direction and Automatic High.
S Club Juniors eventually split in 2005 and two years later Rochelle and Frankie joined The Saturdays.
Even though she’s not keen to turn back time herself, Rochelle is pleased for S Club 7 as they prepare to go on their reunion tour.
‘I’m so excited about S Club 7,’ she explains. ‘All of them are doing it this time, so that’s really nostalgic for me.’
Even if she wanted to reform S Club Juniors, busy Rochelle probably wouldn’t have time to cram it in. As well as singing she’s branched out into TV presenting and has released her own clothing collection with Very.co.uk.
Rochelle‘s personal life is also hectic. The singer fits her work commitments around caring for one-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai, her first child with hubby Marvin Humes. The couple also work together occasionally, having filled in as presenters on This Morning.
With so much on, Rochelle tries her best to get a balance between her work and home life.
‘It’s taken me getting to a certain point to be able to get the balance right,’ she says. ‘I like to cram in as much into a working day as possible, give it my all and work super-long hours, so then I can block out other days to be with my family at home.
‘That’s my first job – being a mum and a wife.’
